Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

^^

Not to dismiss Ens. Brodsky's question above, but I was noticing the character Si Cwan from Peter David's New Frontier series. (His looks as well as his demeanor)...

I couldn't help think Christopher Judge, who portrays Te'luc(sp?) from StarGate SG-1 as this character.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

His name's Teal'c. I haven't gotten started on New Frontier, but I figure Chris Judge can play just about anyone.

^ Yup -- Christopher Judge is exactly who I'd tap to play Captain Gold. *nods*

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

^ Hang on, I thought you wanted him to play Corsi?

Or were you just going to do it on a digital backlot with CJ as all the characters and composite it together in post?

^ I heard Christopher Judge wanted to do his own musical version of Julius Ceasar where he plays all the parts?

Heck, let's just have him play the entire cast of SCE! (Including Scotty--can you just imagine him doing a Scottish accent?)

I just don't see CJ in the role as an old white Jew. I would think Leslie Neilson would be a good Captain Gold.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

^ Uh, I know. It was a joke, y'see.

Nielsen actually might not make a bad choice. People forget that he was a romantic-male-lead-type in his early days, including his role on Forbidden Planet.

I wouldn't mind seeing Leslie Neilsen as Captain Gold...(Kind of ironic since his Captain from 'Forbidden Planet' was the inspiration for Kirk)...

Tielani -- Vannessa Williams

Ooh, that's good! I never really had much of a mental picture for Taelani, but Vanessa works. And I think Travolta would be perfect as that slimeball Drake.
Isn't Drake a contemporary of Kirk's? That would make him almost a quarter of a century too young. I'd opt for James Caan.

Some talk re Captain Gold in the more recent posts. What about Topol (Fiddler on the Roof, For Your Eyes Only)?

Re: Casting

Topol doesn't work for me for Gold -- although I think he'd work for Gold's brother, Nathan, seen in "The Ceremony of Innocence is Drowned."

Re: Casting

Personally, I always pictured Andres Kasulas as Si Cwan. And, of course, Peter Jurasik as the Danterian ambassador whose name I can't recall who Si Cwan came to blows with in the first NF novel.

And a younger Bruce Boxlietner always came to mind for Captain Calhoun.

No, I'm not sure why I keep mentally transplanting B5 into NF. Though at least I can earnestly say that I don't picture Claudia Christian as Soleta.

We came this close to picturing her as Seven of Nine....

Well, I'm saying John Travolta now opposite William Shatner around the time of TUC. That's the beauty of fantasy casting; you can use people at any age, or even cast people who are dead now.
